Bittersweet is probably the best way to express my feelings
on the following news: I will be leaving The Blood-Horse on May 22, just after
my coverage of the Preakness.
As LeBron would say, I’m taking my talents down to South
Florida to begin a new business and a new chapter in my life. After 11 years of
sports writing—six at a Philadelphia area newspaper and five at The
Blood-Horse, I have decided to move on. This plan has been in the works for
more than a year, but has just recently come to fruition, and so I am on one
hand very excited about beginning what will hopefully be a lucrative and
rewarding new business, but also a bit sad to be leaving a career that has been
a passion for me for more than a decade.
